Plan B by Pete Wilson

Have you ever had a plan for your life that didn't work out the way that you intended it to? I'm sure you have. I know I have. Did you have a plan b? Unfortunately I didn't. Most people don't think they need a back up plan for their life, but they should.

In the book Plan B, written by Pete Wilson, he parallels regular people's lives with those in the Bible. He writes how they have gone through a lot of the same things that we have and if you look to God, he can help you through. He gives a lot of examples from people he has met along the way and also his life too. Some of the people he refers to in the Bible are David, Joseph, and Abraham.

Unfortunately, this book did not sit well with me at all. I felt as though his writing style was too simplistic for a topic like this. I also didn't agree with the way he referred to some people in the Bible as "dude". I understand he was trying to reach the young generation also, but you can do that without stooping too low. I really wanted to like this book because the whole idea of it is really good, but I just didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

  1. We are inhabiting the same mind! I agree with you totally; the tone was "off" in this book. I am happy to find someone else who didn't just love it, as it seems most are rating it really highly.
